A dump truck was found running in the wrong direction on an emergency stopping lane of a major expressway in southern Vietnam during Monday night.
Viet Bac, the man who provided the video of the action, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the truck, which can carry a load of 15 metric tons, was moving against the traffic flow on the hard shoulder of the Ho Chi Minh City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway at around 10:30 pm.
Vehicles were driving at very high speed at the time but fortunately no tragedy occurred, he said.
The truck’s behavior was recorded on the freeway CCTV system but darkness made its license plate unrecognizable, according to the road’s operator – Vietnam Expressway Services Engineering JSC.
The firm said it would refer the ghost driving case to the public security ministry for investigation.
Earlier on the same day, two people died and one was severely injured as a van rear-ended a tractor trailer that was parked on the Ho Chi Minh City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway.
